Orlando is known for many things: tourists, bad drivers, strip malls, theme parks, and conventions. Luckily for us, Orlando is a relatively convention heavy city. If you like science fiction, comic books, movies, and gaming, it’s actually not a bad place to hang your hat. Each year at the Orlando Science Center we’re lucky enough to have Otronicon, a convention that focuses on gaming and new technology. I’m happy to say that 2011’s Otronicon is the best yet.
By the time you reach your 30s you’ve probably lost someone close to you in an automobile accident. Statistics can really suck. For me, it was my grandfather when I was about 12 years old. My friends and family have always teased me about being a slow and cautious driver, but the event of my grandfathers death shook me enough to take driving very seriously. Ryan Dunn may have done some irresponsible things that led to his death, but at the end of the day he seemed to be a good guy that made a bad decision (don’t we all?). Check out this video done as a tribute to Ryan Dunn by the folks at Dickhouse (Jackass, Wild Boyz etc..). We’re sincerely sorry for your loss.
